Drop from 5 sets to 3 sets ?

recently ive found my squat and deadlift slowing down in gains and now almost stopping.  i was doin 5 x10 or 5x5 sumtimes for squat and 5x5 for deadlift.  today i switched to 3 x 5 for both exercises.  And it was just so much easy to psyche myself up for it, and whereas i usually do 5x5 at 107 on deadlift, today i did 3x5 at 112. 
My question is, is this an ok way to break a plateau ? with the aim of strength/power, or should i stick to 5 sets?

i tried that front squat, fukin nitemare, cudnt hold it or balance it at all lol, and didnt know any exercise worthy to replace deadlift lol.
